My BP is up and down everyday. I am not able to take BP medication as it has a tendency to stop my heart from beating at night when I am asleep. The doctors tried me on over 8 BP medications. None of them worked. They told me that I would just have to treat it with natural things. So the oils help thin my blood, I take potassium everyday also, as that helps. But the main thing that lowers my BP is coffee, You see I am not like everyone else. I tried to tell the doctors that. They could hardly believe me but it is true. When I drink a cup of coffee, it raises my heart beat up to normal and in doing so, it lowers my BP because the heart begins to pump the fluid off my body. I have a very low heart beat that drops into the 40's at night. Then when I get up it only goes up to about 60 beats, which is still too low. I wonder how many people out there on BP pills have the same problem, I have. If I take a BP pill which lowers my heart beat even more than it already is, it can stop the heart from beating. That was what was happening to me. Then I would wake up ghasping for air every night, because I would stop breathing! The normal heart beat for a man is 72, and for a woman is 80 beats per minute. I was averaging 60-64 beats a minute. When your heart rate is too low it will make you tired all the time. I also check my Blood Pressure all the time.
